West Bengal (July 24,2023) : The Calcutta High Court has ordered that central forces will remain in West Bengal for 10 more days. The court's order comes after a petition was filed by the West Bengal government seeking the extension of the central forces' deployment in the state.

The petition was filed by the West Bengal government on July 19, 2023. The government argued that the deployment of central forces was necessary to maintain law and order in the state. The court heard the petition on July 22, 2023, and ordered that the central forces will remain in the state for 10 more days. The court also directed the central government to submit a report on the situation in the state within 10 days.

The court's order comes amid a political crisis in West Bengal. The state has been witnessing violent protests since the results of the assembly elections were announced on May 2, 2023. The Trinamool Congress won the elections, but the BJP has alleged that there were widespread irregularities in the voting process. The BJP has also alleged that the West Bengal government is not doing enough to control the violence. The party has demanded that the central government impose President's rule in the state. The Calcutta High Court's order is a temporary measure. The court will hear the petition again on July 31, 2023, to decide on the future of the central forces' deployment in West Bengal.
